I've been working on my platform all week. I updated my website: www.amleahy.com.

I even put together a blog trailer for Lofty Ambitions: http://loftyambitions.wordpress.com/2012/03/16/lofty-ambitions-blog....

Any advice on best practices for platform development? What works in the industry's eyes? New things I might try (as if I have any more time)?
